As you may have noticed things have changed a bit here at the Smoking Redhead Club. (freakin' HaloScan)
It turns out that HaloScan (grrrr) decided to shut down, forcing me to export all of my comments.
Once that was done I found out that Blogger & HaloScan (*&$%#) don't currently have a system to inport all comments back to Blogger plus my old HTML had stripped all of the old Blogger code.
It turns out that it was easier to just go with the redesign than try to put all the code back into my current template.
Now I wait with all my exported comment files for Blogger to implement a tool to inport comments.
I'm sorry that I've lost all of your old comments for the moment but feel free to leave new ones ;)
Edit: Ya know, I think I really like the redesign. Its growing on me. I find it a lot more cheerful and serene than the other and I kind of need that right now.
